Blue Heart consists of two related short plays (Heart’s Desire and Blue Kettle) by Caryl Churchill that are brilliantly conceived and teasingly entertaining.  Churchill deftly deconstructs language as well as family and personal relationships.  While sabotaging our expectations of language and dramatic action, there is a doggedly reassertive life force evident in the two unconventional plays.
